    It may be that your Throttle Position Sensor is worn out.The fact that you pressed the pedal down 3 times should not have hurt anything. ( By the way, it does nothing these days for a car, there are no more carburetors, only do it to clear out a flooded condition which almost never happens any more because of the computer )

    Have your Throttle Position Sensor checked
